Change for the sake of change isn't ideal, but the status quo isn't exactly working for the Wizards. From the 3-point shooting to big man minutes, all ideas should be on the table.
Rasual Butler went through a stretch like this last season with the Indiana Pacers and insists what the Wizards are experiencing is a lot different.
Personnel moves were made to keep the Wizards competitive this season while preserving salary cap space for the next few years, but the road has been rougher than expected.

Wizards - Team News
Bradley Beal - G
Bradley Beal (leg) is hoping to play Friday against the 76ers. The Wizards really need him right now, going 2-6 since Beal went down. He will almost certainly be on a minutes limit in his return and likely be in the 24-30 range. With...

John Wall - G
John Wall hit just 2-of-10 shots for five points, 10 assists and four turnovers in 35 minutes... The five points were a season low for Wall, but he's surprisingly had several single-digit scoring nights this season. The Wizards are struggling without Bradley Beal, but...

Paul Pierce - F
Contrary to a previous report, Paul Pierce (knee) will not play vs. Minnesota on Wednesday. Wizards coach Randy Wittman said Pierce was available, but he took only one shot during warmups and was in obvious pain. We'll consider Pierce day-to-day until Washington...

Otto Porter - F

Paul Pierce - F
Paul Pierce (knee) will be available to play vs. the Timberwolves on Wednesday. Pierce needed help leaving the court after banging his knee late in Tuesday's game, but it sounds like he'll start at SF tonight. It should be an emotional matchup vs....

Daniel Orton - F/C
Former NBA center Daniel Orton was released from his team in the Philippines after making fun... "[Pacquiao playing] is a joke," said Orton. "Professional boxer? Yeah. Congressman? All right. But professional basketball player? Seriously? It's a...

Garrett Temple - G
Garrett Temple made another start for Bradley Beal (leg) on Tuesday, notching 10 points, two... Beal doesn't have a return date but he's inching closer every day, and Temple is a shaky fantasy option even while he's holding down the starting SG job. He's worth a look...

Marcin Gortat - C
Marcin Gortat recorded his 17th double-double of the season on Tuesday with 16 points and 11... Gortat made 8-of-11 shots and added three assists and one block in the disappointing loss, and Randy Wittman said he stuck with a small lineup to matchup with Golden State...
